Patient: Woman 29 years Occupation: Nurse Pain: Can reach 6/10
Complaint: Back and Neck Pain can often occur simultaneously. This Woman works as a Nurse, and has developed left sided Neck & Back Pain over the few months. She recalls hurting her low back about 6 months ago, while lifting a heavy patient. She is unsure how neck pain has developed.
Treatment: This Woman responded well to Spinal Manipulation of her back and neck. The range of movement in her neck and low back was initially poor, but quickly improved with treatment.
She visited weekly for 4 treatments, and was pain free by this stage.
Prognosis: This Woman visits me if and when she feels the need.
She now goes to Pilates classes twice per week, and feels much stronger and able to cope with the demands of her job.
